Indian Futures works alongside a number of artists who help our fundraising efforts. These artists aren't only incredibly talented but also have an interest in the work we do. We help each other the following way: the artists donate or share their work with us and we sell it or raise their profile within our supporters and donors.

Below are the artists who are our source of inspiration and fundraising. We invite you to have a browse and, if you want to find out more about them or buy some of their artwork, don't be shy and let us know at indianfuturesfundraising@gmail.comTell us also if you're an artist yourself and would like to get involved!

Firm Gently

Mark, the Artist behind Firm Gently creates stunning artwork that draws ones attention to natural beauty. 

Below is a snippet of how Firm Gently describes his art, and process along with some examples of his work. 

MY ART

I like Paul Cezanne, Joseph Turner, Albrecht Dürer - I like lots of painters.

I like to draw attention to the way our visual systems work and how easily we can be fooled.

This is most obvious in my realistic-looking paintings which on closer inspection prove to be made up of extremely messy (the messier the better) strokes.

 

WHY FIRM GENTLY*?

I read it on the back of a packet of seeds (sow, cover in soil then firm gently)... I liked it, it pertains to cultivation and growth.

Come Through

Remi's pics were taken in rural and urban North India in 2017.

They are 8" x 8" and come with a white 10" x 10" mount.

'My work is not planned.

It’s spontaneous and mood dependant.

I take photos whenever I feel the need for it.

My inspiration comes from human behaviour. I like to picture people when they’re not aware of the camera. That’s when photography becomes truly real.'

storisse

Storisse.com is a blog which presents a different avenue to charitable giving. Weekly personal stories are linked to inspirational charities in London and Brighton.

 

The blog is written by Alex Cuncev, who is also a charity manager with a PhD in storytelling. Alex created the website based on her conviction that telling stories is an essential part of our life, which helps heal, motivate and inspire us.

 

‘We want to know who we are giving to and why. We also want to know that what we give is going to make a real impact. I believe in the power of stories – they can convince us of facts, when other things cannot.’

 

‘Over the course of time I gathered a backlog of stories that I really wanted to share. Some are sad stories, some border on unbelievable, but all are soul healing and heart-rending. There is so much goodness around us, so much positivity even in the hardest of situations - I hope my blog contributes to showing that.’

In 2018, StoriSSe published a story on Indian Futures.
